Had these fitted for last 2/3yrs. I advised my insurers who noted it on the policy.
However my Brokers have now changed insurers who have put an endorsement on the policy to say that the exhausts must have a BSI Kite mark, or an E mark to be road legal ( I can't see any) and if the exhaust system is damaged they would only pay to replace with stock pipes.
The bike passed the last MOT and the technician noted that the pipes were "noisy".
Would appreciate the benefit of anyone's comments/views

Thanks

I would have thought the cost of the stock exhaust from Suzuki would be about the same as the Cruzers if not more. I have Vance and Hines Cruzers on my bike, where I take it for the MOT the guy puts an advisory on for loud exhaust to cover himself. I did ask him if this was a bad thing to have on every year and would there eventually be a come back, he assured me it was fine. Up to now no problem.

Change MOT station, I've never had an 'advisory' for a noisy exhaust Rolling Eyes not that an advisory matters.

OK - so the issue is really "are they road legal", not "have they passed an MOT" - there's a difference between what your tester will pass & what is actually road legal.  If I was you, I'd be asking the question of the manufacturer.  If they are UK road legal, speak to the insurance company and explain that you have a letter from the manufacturer stating they are UK road legal.  It'll be down to the insurer to decide whether they will accept that.  If they won't accept that, you'd have either change you pipes or change your insurer.

If they are not UK road legal, then you run the risk of the insurance company not paying you out in the event of a claim.  Again, you then have the same choice as before.  They've informed you of what they want, you can't turn round and say you don't know.  Simple fact is that insurance companies only want to take on safe bets & will do whatever they can to wriggle out of paying.

All exhausts are road legal, the only difference is that some of the newer bikes have catalytic convertors built into the actual exhaust so if you change it to an exhaust without one you would be breaking the law. Noise is only an advisory as of yet no one has definitely set down a max limit Db. I think!

Think you'll find some pipes are marked :Not For Road Use" - more than likely sports types
